When you want to get rid of the song that's been playing in your head for who-knows-how-long, chew gum.
A recent research published in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology found that chewing gum can stop unwanted musical memories from forming. Well, it doesn't have to be gum. The point is you should be chewing.
Participants in the study had to listen to catchy songs while chewing gum. Results showed that gum chewing lowered how often they thought of each song and played it in their heads. Awesome!
